Top Browser MMOs for the Casual Gamer

Metal Arcade: Nate Gray writes:

In an ever-busy world, people are looking for ways to stay productive without having to give up their love for gaming. Browser MMOs can be a good answer.

It used to be that I’d look at the time people spent on browser games and think, "why?" That’s not to say I looked down on so-called ‘casual gaming’. Rather, I figured if you’re going to waste hours in a game world, it may as well be in any number of higher quality MMOs out there.

But these days, I get it. Real life and adulthood has long-since caught up to me, and I can no longer spare the many hours a day it takes to level, raid, pvp, etc. And yet, I need that gaming fix, even if it’s just during that hour or two before bed. One day, I booted up a browser MMO game and suddenly, it all made sense. Wait, you mean I can set my character to auto-kill crap while I go do the laundry? I don’t have to choose between leveling up and writing that book I always wanted to? I can farm monies and gear while I’m studying for that test!? Sign me up!
